The International Travel College is one of New Zealand’s most well-regarded providers of travel and tourism education at the tertiary level. We are committed to supporting and improving travel and tourism education across the country at all levels.
That’s why we created ITC in Schools, a pathway for high schools to offer our education resources at NCEA levels 2 and 3. This provides a fantastic option for schools to offer a more diverse education, and a way for students to learn about the exciting possibilities of a career in travel and tourism.
Now that 2024 is just on the horizon, the ITC Schools Team has announced plans for the coming year. Here’s everything we’re looking forward to in the New Year!In Schools, News | Tagged ITC in Schools, Schools Team, Study travel and tourism | Leave a reply
ITC’s Schools Team is excited to share their very first Achievement Standard, which has recently been approved by NZQA.
This Achievement Standard is focused on marketing, which is an integral part of travel and tourism and a large career possibility for students who might enter into Destination Marketing in the future. That said, students who complete this Achievement Standard will come away with a great foundation in marketing principles that can be applied to any industry.
ITC has been working hard to create this new resource, which will be available in high schools across New Zealand as a Short Course.News | Tagged Achievement Standards, marketing, Schools Team | Leave a reply
Napier and the entire surrounding region has had such a challenging year that ITC wanted to step in and help out the best way we know how – with top-tier education.
So many high school students have had their learning disrupted due to the flooding and ongoing clean-up, so we decided to offer two short courses on Flight Attending.
Michelle Newsome took the first short course, and Laura Orsbourn took the second. Both team members are relatively new to the Schools Team, but absolutely knocked it out of the park and did an incredible job in Napier.In Schools, News | Tagged Flight attending, ITC in Schools, Schools Team, Short courses | Leave a reply
ITC is over the moon to welcome a brand new member of the team: Laura Orsbourn.
Laura will be a Tourism Education Tutor and provide marketing support for the Schools Team.
Not only is Laura an ITC graduate, having completed the Levels 3 and 4 Certificate in 2012 with distinction, she was also Student of the Year! After graduating, Laura worked at the Grand Mercure, where she was again honoured with the title of Employee of the Year. There, she worked in supervisor and training roles as well.
Laura returned to ITC in 2019 to complete the Level 5 Diploma before heading overseas to work for Disney. Since her return, she has been working at Tourism Holdings Ltd as a booking host and coordinator.
And now, finally, she returns to ITC once again – but this time as a team member! We’re so excited to have her, and of course had to take a moment to ask her more about her history and what she will bring to the ITC family.News, Staff News | Tagged ITC family, New staff member, Schools Team | Leave a reply
One of the great things about ITC is that we don’t just offer tourism and travel credits for those who have finished high school. In fact, our Business of Tourism Academy offers Year 12 and 13 students in Auckland and Whangarei the chance to earn up to 30 level 3 credits throughout their school year.
And the best part is, we’ll be offering FIVE opportunities to join our Business of Tourism Academy in 2023.In Schools, News | Tagged Business of Tourism Academy, ITC in Schools, level 3, Schools Team | Leave a reply
Michelle Newsome is ITC’s newest team member, joining the Schools Team as a Tourism Educator.
And it only takes a moment hearing about her background or her passion for the industry to see why she’s the perfect fit for the role.
From the historic sites of Europe to nomadic safaris in Queenstown, Michelle has seen (and worked) it all. So we sat down for a quick introduction.
Here at the International Travel College, we love all things travel and tourism, and we love nothing more than sharing that passion with young Kiwis all over the country.
That’s why we provide a number of options for high Schools in New Zealand to introduce students to the travel and tourism industry, inspiring them to start exciting careers, and providing them with credits towards NCEA levels 2 and 3 in the process.
Our dedicated schools team has an excellent reputation in schools and the tourism industry. Our team is known for their energy, excellent communication, inspirational teaching methods and passion for providing a memorable experience.
